Now that IFA 2010 is nearly over I thought it might be fun to show off some of the freebies and goodies that were up for grabs at IFA 2010.
Lots of sites have covered IFA 2010 in depth, talking about the new 3D TVs (I’m sorry, but they still don’t really do much for me), tablet devices, slates, laptops, etc, in fact I still have a few posts to write up today myself, but the question I am asked the most about events such as IFA and CES is “what freebies were there”?
So, to try to do something a little different, I thought I would show a selection of goodies that were available.
Sometimes these goodies are on display on booths and you can just take them, other times you can only get them if you sit through a demo or presentation, and sometimes they are just for press only.
I have to say that the quality and availability of goodies were not as good at IFA as they were at CES. I literally came back with bags of goodies to give away from CES, where as I was only a small bag from IFA – sign of the times maybe, or maybe because IFA is open to the public companies are less inclined to give away stuff?
The night before the event opened, there was a press event, that included food and drink and an opportunity to meet some of the companies at IFA. As usual the organisers of the event had laid on amazing food, including three separate chocolate fountains!
But I digress…….
Probably the coolest thing was this little puppy wearing his 3D glasses. This was part of a giveaway from LG who were showing off their 3D Plasma TVs. This little fellow is already going off to stay with my friends 7 year old daughter Abi before you ask if you can have him!
If you get hungry you could snack on the Windows 7 pretzels.
There were the usual assortment of pen drives (usually with press kits on them) and Toshiba even included a little packet of mints with each one – I’m sorry but we won’t be doing an unboxing post followed by a full hands on review of the mints.
On the Emtec stand there was a large display of little animal “toys”, all of which turned out to be pen drives as well.
So, there you have it – a quick look at some of the better items.
Stay tuned for CES and the goodies report.
